Stretch till you retch, a Gymkhana for some, Skittles for others, and a lot of Dips

16 Jan

Crossfit London skittles ( its ok, you need to be there) or a lovely Gymkhana session preceded this weeks foray into mobility issues under the  dubious title of  “stretch till you retch”. Well, for me thats an improvement. In less than 2 weeks I’ve moved from flexibility as a blood sport to just mildly puke inducing. The strange thing was that I found myself wanting to harmonise with the class, and encourage them to collect chi and Prana…….more next week.

Well we held the samson stretch for a “time”: them dropped into Kates famous “chatty bottoms” to unload our emotional baggage

Then it was 2,2,2,2 deadlift ( over 85% of 1 rep max) followed by this demented triplet  of kettlebell swing, jumping squat, ring dips in the following rounds:

27, 21, 15, 9

And Donn dropped by

One thought on “Stretch till you retch, a Gymkhana for some, Skittles for others, and a lot of Dips

  1. Was chuffed to get my deadlift back – last round was 2 X 100 kg.
    Thanks for your encouragement Yuri.

    WOD 20kg kettlebell and 2 skinny bands on dips – 14.16. Harsh!

    Samson stretch was the worst pain ever!
